Galveston Wood Carving Walk (10K)

On Sep 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike covered most of Galveston Island in a tidal surge. The combination of powerful wind and waves uprooted many trees, but ultimately the salty water led to the demise of thousands of others.  Ike destroyed much of Galveston’s beautiful tree canopy.  Months later artists carved the tree stumps into things of beauty.  Whimsical carvings replaced the majestic oaks that once lined the streets.  This walking event took us by these wonderful sculptures and many beautiful old homes.
